I received an email this morning from the National Council of Churches USA. I have no idea why, but I'm glad I did. Finally there is a tad of hope for the environment. I have always said that if the churches would get involved with protecting the earth from environmental destruction there might be hope. If they believe that God created the earth, why wouldn't they want to protect God's creation? Seems they do and it's about time. Please be sure to read the open letter, "God's Earth is Sacred". That's where I found the hope.

In Open Letter, Theologians Warn of 'False Gospel' on the Environment, Call Christians to Repent of Sin
In an effort to refute what they call a “false gospel” and to change destructive attitudes and actions concerning the environment, a group of theologians, convened by the National Council of Churches USA, released an open letter Feb. 14 calling on Christians to reject teachings that suggest humans are “called” to exploit the Earth without care for how our behavior impacts the rest of God’s creation. The statement, “God’s Earth is Sacred: An Open Letter to Church and Society in the United States,” points out that there is both an environmental and a theological crisis that must be addressed.
